Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 18:4 (KJV)
Humility flows out of total and complete dependence upon God, and submitting fully to the authority of His Word. Jesus is telling us that this childlike humility leads to greatness in the kingdom of heaven. And so the more that we can humble ourselves by keeping Jesus at the center, the more will we find favor and good success in the various arenas of life.
